My dad is an airline pilot. I still say to this day I would love to be a passenger when he flies. Then hear over the intercom "this is your Dad speaking." Even if he flies or not, flying on planes can be very nerve racking. Especially when a storm approaches. That is when the pilot will make several decisions. One, the pilot will adjust the altitude to soar above the storm where it’s less turbulence. Two, they will have to embrace the storm. That is when the captain speaks over the intercom. He or she have to sound calm because people’s lives are at stake in the cabin. If the captain sounds anxious and afraid then most of the passengers will feel the same. Since the captain is calm then everyone will feel more at ease.
Your attitude gages your altitude and it will influence people around you. No matter what is going on you can change your perception and remain calm in the storms. Your attitude sets the stage of the day. We chose to be defeated or victorious when we wake up. Either we whirl our own storm or we remain calm in our minds. Yet, life will hit us hard again and again, but we are called to be calm in the storm. When a storm comes make the choice to embrace the storm with a calm spirit or change your altitude with a better attitude to soar over the storm. Once you realize your ability to choose your attitude. You can take the next step and become someone greater than you were before, a person with higher potential! You will soar high and be able to hit a higher altitude with the proper attitude.
When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. Then he asked them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” Mark 4:39-40
Jesus can empower you to focus on the hope. Jesus will guide your attitude and will let you soar higher than you have ever before. Allow him to be the captain of your plane. Get in the Word and Pray today. I promise your attitude will soar.
-Prayer lifts your attitude
-Remain Calm in storms
-Lives are at stake
